Ugandan Visa Requirements to See Mountain Gorillas

December 11th, 2010
The mountain gorilla is the largest member of the great ape family. It is also one of the most vulnerable -- there are only about 780 of them left in the wild. The good news, according to the BBC, is that this number represents a 25% increase over the past 7 years. One incentive for local people to protect mountain gorillas is eco-tourism.
